BASELWORLD 2015 – NEW SLIMLINE MANUFACTURE MOONPHASE FOR WOMEN

The Slimline Manufacture combines feminine grace and elegance with the technological innovation that has always defined the Slimline Manufacture.

These new striking timepieces for ladies offer the same features and functionality than the Slimline Moonphase Manufacture for men. But what attracts the attention is the 38 mm diameter case with its magnificent and dazzling 60 diamonds.

Small is beautiful

As any avid watch collector understands, choosing a watch is as much about your physical features as it is about the watch itself. For smaller wrists and hands, it is crucial to choose a watch that isn’t overpowering, ill fitting or poorly shaped. Although your wrists may make it difficult to choose a suitable watch, the new Slimline Moonphase Manufacture with its 38 mm diameter will fit perfectly.

The new model of the Slimline Moonphase Manufacture is driven by the latest movement, entirely developed by Frederique Constant; the FC-703 Manufacture automatic caliber, with 26 jewels and a 42-hour power reserve.

Women love Manufacture Watches

Specification

The FC-703VD3SD4 is presented with a gleaming three-part stainless polished rose gold plated steel case.

The automatic movement features hours, minutes, date and moonphase all adjustable through the single crown. The impressive domed silver dial is adorned with hand-applied nickel indexes and hands; and is protected by a convex sapphire crystal.

Watches are finished with an alligator strap (black or brown).

The dial itself with its silver colour and its eight hand applied diamonds (0.02ct) on the hour indexes is enchanting and delicate.

These stylish watches have also a sapphire case back that permits to observe the performance of the FC-703 movement. In spite of its beautiful design the Slimline Moonphase manufacture is water resistant to three atmospheres.

Timeless but in the spirit of the time, the Slimline Moonphase Manufacture with it’s distinctive design, is a fashionable accessory that will be the important to your spectacular outfit.
